DAY 13 of the World Darts Championship should be a fiery occasion with a host of big names in action.
And SunSport has picked three tips for the day.
PDC World Darts Championship 2022 Day 13 Picks
Current Tournament Profit & Loss: +12.39pts Profit
James Wade v Martijn Kleermaker
Wade has almost been forgotten as he has only played once in the tournament so far, but with his section of the draw so open, he’s got a great chance to make the last four and who knows, maybe his first ever Worlds final.
Kleermaker will be no easy task but let’s be honest, he’s delighted he’s not playing Joe Cullen.
The 180s market interests me as we all know that Wade isn’t the biggest hitter (he didn’t hit one in his victory over Kuivenhoven before Christmas).
Kleermaker only hit one when beating Cullen but hit 17 scores of 140 or better. I think that singular maximum has skewed the market slightly, as he’s currently the bigger price to get the most 180s.
Back it and hope that the Dutchman plays to his above 90 average standard.
1pt – Kleermaker Most 180s @ 13/10
Peter Wright v Ryan Searle
This could be the game of the tournament, which is saying a lot considering what we’ve seen already!
Wright’s previous game against Heta saw 11 180s, which is some going considering Wright was missing for the first two sets, and Heta was missing for the last two.
He’ll be facing one of the bigger scorers in the game in Searle, and the bar for total maximums is understandably high.
But… I think it gets covered.
I don’t see either of these two going missing for any period of time (assuming Wright doesn’t go back to the set of Allan keys he was chucking with at the start of the Heta game) and Searle easily has the game to push Wright all the way.
I’d be tempted to have a small play on Wright to win 4-3 but we’ve done well so far in winning little and often so we’ll stick with what we know.
1pt – Over 13.5 180s @ Evs
Raymond Smith v Mervyn King
No-one saw this being a last 16 game but both are here on merit and it’s one of the more intriguing contests we have remaining.
I’ve been so impressed with Smith, someone I knew very little about before the tournament.
He faces a different challenge from the wildcard Hempel in a man who is one of the great stalwarts of Darts.
I bang on about it often but it can’t be stressed enough how much Ally Pally experience counts for and King has more of it than almost anyone.
The crowd has been on his side for once this year, which might have given him a little boost even if he plays it down.
Smith had never played a best of seven set game on TV before the other day, much less go this far in the Worlds.
I think King will do a job here and progress comfortably, I’ve seen nothing that suggests he’ll suddenly go off the rails and the -1.5 set handicap appeals massively.
1pt – King -1.5 Handicap @ 4/6
Kleermaker Most 180s @ 13/10
Wright v Searle Over 13.5 180s @ Evs
King -1.5 Handicap @ 4/6
